Kohli and Paine facing brutal issue on first day of Test series

Kohli and Paine facing brutal issue on first day of Test series

"The workload on the guys who will play in the absence of the allrounder will be high but it's something that has already been discussed, that they should look forward to that and not think of that as a burden and something that's going to be tough", he said.

Marsh's place has been taken by middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb - who has been recalled for the first time since the tour of South Africa in March and April - meaning Australia will rely on three seamers.

"As this series wears on, and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer, our bowlers will be a bit exhausted then the all rounder position becomes important", said Paine.

Australia vice-captain Mitchell Marsh was dropped for the first Test against India, with Peter Handscomb earning his spot in Adelaide.

"We've obviously got a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if we need him to".

The coach also said that young Marcus Harris will make his debut and he will open the innings along with Aaron Finch.

Archie Schiller will be part of the squad for the Boxing Day Test match against the subcontinent giants that will start on December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

"The fact all our three quicks go in really fresh means we've got confidence in them, particularly at the start of the series".

"We know the talent Mitch has and we know he is good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at Test level".

Based on recent Tests at Adelaide Oval, which have been played on a lush pitch designed with one eye on protecting the pink ball, Australia believe they do not need an extra bowler.

"The wicket over the last few years here has given enough throughout the game [to not need an all-rounder]". Will they deliver India its first Test series win on Australian soil?

The Aussie batting may be in tatters but they have four world class bowlers in Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon.

"You want to bat on days when it's 40 degrees", said the wicketkeeper.
